Testing:

Excel 2007 Big Number Crunch: This benchmark uses mathematics to perform complex calculations in Excel 2007, which puts a heavy load on the processor. The measurement is in seconds that it takes to complete the task. The benchmark is performed three times and then averaged for the final score.

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lower is better

 

POV Ray 3.7: This program features a built-in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric MultiProcessing), enabling the workload to be spread across the cores for a quicker completion.

Higher Is Better

 

PCMark Vantage is used to measure complete system performance. We will be running a series of tests to gauge the performance of each individual motherboard to see which board, if any, rises above the others.

 

In this series of benchmarks, the MSI 890GXM had very similar performance to the Asus 790FX motherboard. The MSI did win the majority of the test runs, but was just slightly edged out by 790FX board in PCMark Vantage benchmark.
